Bunclody ICA - New members needed

It is 70 years since ICA was started in Bunclody. The guild has always been very active in the parish for all those years. We want to keep that tradition alive. But, due in no small way to Covid 19 and the demographic ageing of our members, we are desperately looking for new members to join our guild. We meet once a month and have a guest speaker. Sometimes have various crafts, etc at our meeting. We also meet once a month for coffee and chat in local restaurant. Sadly, if we do not get new members, we may have to close the guild. If you have 2 hours to spare, once a month, and to keep the guild open, which was kept going by so many wonderful women in the past.

Please phone 087 2805426 or 086 8135587

We continue to reflect on the synodal journey The Church has a mission to the world. As believers in Jesus Christ, we share in the responsibility to further that mission and share in the love of our neighbour and our common home on earth. As a member of the Church in Ferns how can I support causes related to social justice, peace and climate change

Bunclody Library Book Club

We are currently taking names to join our book club which will meet once a month on a Thursday evening in person in the branch . Register your interest by emailing The first meeting will take place in March.


Compassion for human frailty combined with a gentle challenge to a better life marked the response of Jesus. From whom have you experienced a compassionate challenge? What was that like for you? To whom have you given such a challenge?
The Pharisees and scribes self-righteously condemned the woman until Jesus brought them in touch with their own sinfulness. This was a conversion moment for them and they turned away from their guest for the death of the woman. Have there been times when your awareness of your own fragility and sinfulness has helped you to be less judgemental of other?
‘What do you say?’ can be an embarrassing question. Jesus had the courage to voice an opinion, even though it was against the party line of the day. When you have seen that courage shown-by yourself, or by another? What was the result?


In its Lenten campaign this year, Trocaire is highlighting the plight of people in East Africa who are struggling with the effects of climate change. We find out more and why these people cannot be forgotten at a time when so many are in need. The homily for the Fifth Sunday of Lent is all about mercy, healing and conversion. We have a meditation by Pope Francis for the newsletter insert. We include a reflection by a participant in the recent synodality meetings who looks forward to a new era of hope for our Church. We feature poems by Philip Quirke and a video on the priesthood of all the baptised and our call to mission. Finally, as the celebration of Easter edges closer, we explore five reasons why we should participate in the Eucharist on Sundays. Check out these and other resources available at


  • The Parish of Bunclody/Kilmyshall shall be a community:

  • With deep respect for and interest in each and every person.
  • Flourishing in love, care, support, co-operation, education and communication, building to the unity of the Body of Christ.
